2/10 Poor

The property advertising is very misleading. This is not a 5-star as advertised. The rooms and the amenities are dated. Wouldn’t recommend it.

4/10 Fair

The hotel looks old and lacks maintenance. Wood fences not painted in ages, rusted iron, etc. We went to the buffet restaurant on the evening of our arrival. They told us it closed at 9:30 pm - pretty early for Greece. It was 9:27 pm. We went in and got a plate of salad. Then they removed all the food at 9:30 pm - all at once. No warning. No consideration we just arrived. The closest restaurant is a 10 min walk. We had great stays across several islands over a few weeks. This was not one of them, especially for a high price. Glad we stayed only one night.

Me and my wife went here on our honeymoon and we absolutely loved it! We were just over the moon during our week stay. Staff was as nice as can be and the the restaurants served everything with olive oil and we LOVED it! Beautiful scenery and the Mediterranean Sea is to die for. Cannot recommend this place enough.
